Brabin and Watson To Represent Blackpool Again

Gary Brabin and Andy Watson have joined the list of players pulling on a tangerine shirt again to play in the Hedzup charity shield, which takes place at Bloomfield Road on Sunday 25 May.

The pair will line-up alongside the likes of Danny Coid, John Hills, Richie Wellens, Mike Davies, David Eyres and Scott Taylor for a match against an OUAS Celebrity side, which aims to raise money for Alder Hey Children's Hospice, Ronald McDonald House and Once Upon A Smile.

Soap stars, Pop stars and former footballers will make up the opposition, with Danny Miller, Owen Coyle, Nico Mirallegro, Anthony Quinlan, Danny Higginbotham and Jimmy Constable (911) signed up to represent the opposition, with further names to be announced in due course.

Tickets for the game, which will kick-off at 2pm, are priced at £5 for Adults, £2 for Seniors and £1 for Children Under-16.

Hedzup is a newly launched organisation aimed at raising awareness of brain tumours in children and the symptoms associated, while Manchester-based Once Upon A Smile work closely with Hospitals, Hospices, Schools and Charities to offer financial support or respite breaks.
